On the heels of yet another movie promotion for Pixar's Cars, Cars.com (natch) has gone and selected what it considered the ten best movie cars of all time, along with five it figures should've been earmarked for the compactor.

The envelope, please ...

Best:

  1. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, "Back to the Future"
  2. 1961 Ferrari 250 GT, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (for completists, that's a 250 GT California Spyder SWB, guys)
  3. 1974 Dodge Monaco, "The Blues Brothers"
  4. 1964 Aston Martin DB5, "Goldfinger"
  5. Batmobile Tumbler, "Batman Begins"
  6. 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390, "Bullitt"
  7. 1959 Cadillac Ambulance, "Ghostbusters"
  8. 1958 Plymouth Fury, "Christine"
  9. 1973 Ford Falcon, "The Road Warrior" (pictured)
  10. 2003 Mini Cooper S, "The Italian Job"

Worst:

  1. 1983 Ford LTD Country Squire, "National Lampoon's Vacation"
  2. 1974 Dodge Tradesman, "Napoleon Dynamite"
  3. Winnebago Chieftain, "Spaceballs"
  4. 1984 Ford Econoline, "Dumb and Dumber"
  5. 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, "Herbie: Fully Loaded"

Technical details, unique features and an explanation as to how they ranked the vehicles are at the link. Apparently, we've got more love for the Griswold's metallic pea-soup Wagonqueen Family Truckster than the folks at Cars.com. C'mon... where's your sense of humor, guys?

      wtf? Where was the General Lee for the Best Cars? Or the Dodge Charger in Bullit? The 68-69 Charger was one of the coolest cars ever made! How about the original Batmobile or the Monkeemobile?

      Come on people...although I agree with a few of ya'll, not one mention of any of 007's tricked out cars, especially that flying AMC whatever the heck it was...but my vote goes for Christine, you ALMOST could not kill her....

      #1 Should be the Lambourghini Countach and Countach LPS in the Cannonball Run and Cannonbal Run 2 movies.
      #2 Should be the Mercedes-Benz 300 Gullwing in Gumball Rally.
      #3 Should be the Aston-Martin Volante in James Bond: the Living Daylights with or without accessories.
      #4 Should be the Aston-Martin DB5 in James Bond: Goldfinger.
      #5 Should be the Ferrari 308 in the Cannonball Run.
      #6 Should be the Mustang in James Bond Diamonds are Forever.
      #7 Should be the original Aston-Martin DBS in James Bond: On her Majesties Secret Service. This should be tied with Casino Royale coming out.
      #8 Should be the Aston-Martin Vanquish not forgotten in James Bond: Die Another Day.
      #9 Should be the Jaguar XJ-R Roadster in James Bond: Die Another Day.
      #10 The Corvette in Cannonbal Run. It was a bad year for the 'vette (underpowered because of emmisions)but it's a great car.
      #11 All of these cars in my own movie with better looking girls :)
